I’m in the Northeast for the weekend for a couple reasons, one of them being the lovely and amazing Sofía who I spent all day walking around Manhattan with yesterday. It was absolutely wonderful and put me in such a good mood that I won’t even complain about the fact that there is almost nothing worth the time to type it up on TV tonight. I mean, “Breaking Bad” is on and I guess there’s a few of you who haven’t fallen asleep on “Treme” yet, but overall it’s a wasteland. Here is your Sunday night wasteland:
7:00 p.m.: “ABC Sports Special: Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” on ABC. Special presentation.
“NBC Special: The Making of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter” on NBC. I won’t be able to see this because I’ll be en-route back to Maryland so if someone could answer this question in the comments I’ll be grateful: Is there butterbeer and is it alcoholic? Pursuant to that, if the butterbeer is not alcoholic, is there firewhiskey?
“PBS Special: Elaine Paige: Celebrating a Life on Stage” on PBS.
“‘Til Death” on Fox.
7:30 p.m.: “Sons of Tucson” on Fox. Returns from hiatus in a new time slot. I’d say something about this being the time slot of certain doom, but I’m pretty sure for Fox that’s 8 p.m. on Fridays.
“ABC Sports Special: NBC Countdown” on ABC.
8:00 p.m.: “Bridezillas: Where Are They Now?” on WE. One hour special presentation.
“MTV Special: 2010 MTV Movie Awards Pre-Show” on MTV. One hour special presentation. If you watch this, I’d advise watching it on mute. The only value is in taking bets on who’s going to show up on “Go Fug Yourself” tomorrow and making a drinking game out of how frequently you see skinny jeans. Sip if they’re on a girl, chug if they’re on a guy, finish the bottle if they’re on Robert Pattinson.
“NBC Sports Special: NHL Stanley Cup Finals - Game #5” on NBC. Special presentation.
“The Canadian Tenors: Live in Toronto” on PBS.
“Sunday Best” on BET.
“ABC Sports Special: NBC Finals, Game 2” on ABC. Special presentation.
9:00 p.m.: “Bridezillas” on WE. Seventh season premiere.
“Drop Dead Diva” on Lifetime. Second season premiere.
“Holmes on Homes” on HGTV. Seventh season finale.
“Ice Road Truckers” on History. Fourth season premiere.
“Kate Plus 8” on TLC. One hour special presentation.
“MTV Special: 2010 MTV Movie Awards” on MTV. Two hour special presentation. Dustin’s covered all there is to say about this already. Go read his post if you haven’t.
“The Tudors” on Showtime.
10:00 p.m.: “Army Wives” on Lifetime.
“Breaking Bad” on AMC.
“Kate Plus 8: Inside Kate’s World” on TLC. One hour special presentation.
